The Insight 9 Day Retreat is The Road to Mental Maturity.
Michał Pasterski is the founder of Life Architect, Planets and the Conscious Education Foundation. On a daily basis, he works as a coach and personal development coach.
Sandra Lasek is a psychologist and a coach, as well as a certified staff management specialist with a substantial work experience in this field. She graduated from York University in Canada and Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
The aim of this retreat is to get to know oneself in-depth, free yourself from the self-destructive habits of your mind and achieve a state of mental maturity by understanding and thoroughly practicing the techniques included in the Insight method. I also talk about how we can get rid of self-destructive mental habits by replacing them with emotional maturity and mental freedom.
During these 9 days you will practice the techniques of the Insight method described in the book by Michael Pasterski, learning how to make use of them on our own. We will also pick up new techniques (not described in the book) and explore various approaches to self-development.

What is included in your investment:
All the workshops are run by Michal and Sandra simultaneously. Both of them present the workshop material and, what’s more, constantly complement each other with knowledge and a different perspective on each subject, which guarantees a distinctively individual approach.
Unique group process.
The workshop model is based on the group coaching method with elements of individual coaching - each participant will have the opportunity to have a short one-to-one coaching session with one of the coaches.
Focus on practice. During the workshop we will convey the knowledge essence without beating around the bush. 80% of the training is about practicing many carefully selected techniques and methods of self-work.
Points Of You is a game, in which you can turn off your rational thinking and open up to what intuition tells you. Using this group coaching tool will be a completely new and exciting stimulus for you to look at yourself from a different perspective.
Active participation. Interactions and discussions between participants are an integral part of the workshop - the members of the workshop group can share their experiences and realizations at all times.
In order to prepare your body and mind for a fruitful day, full of experiences, we will start every day with a short morning session of yoga and meditation.
It is a key element of the incubation process, which allows our unconscious to “digest” personal discoveries and new experiences stimulated during the workshop. We offer daily 1.5hr invigorating yoga and yoga nidra, walking on rice terraces, and Indonesian massage with relaxing music.
Flexible daily schedule.
The workshop schedule is always flexible so that we can respond every step of the way to the needs of the group. So, no worries. While in Bali you will have the opportunity not only to get to know yourself but also this fascinating island.
We know from our experience of many years in organizing this type of workshops that this form of group work gives highly sustainable results.
